Categories of Governor

There are four different categories of Governor at Belvidere School:

Parent Governors (4)
Parent Governors are elected by the parents of all students who are registered at the school. When a vacancy occurs, parents are informed by email or a letter from the Headteacher is sent home and nominations are invited.

Staff Governors (2)
Staff governors are elected by their colleagues. We normally have two governors who are on the teaching staff and one governor who is a member of the support staff. The Headteacher is also a Governor.

Community Governors (10)
Community governors are co-opted on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the governing body.

Local Authority Governors (1)
Local authority governors are nominated by the local councillor?

All Governors have the same responsibilities and an equal say on the Governing body
